New Butterick PatternsBy Deepika on 11/26/11 2:13 PM

The new Butterick collection held some surprises for us and a realization.

The very first things that popped out at us in this collection are the patterns inspired by Kate Middleton's wedding dress and her sister's dress.

Angela Wolf predicted in her column that these dresses would affect fashion, and she was right!

And now for the realization...

Styles really do come back.

Here are three fashions from the Retro Butterick line that look so modern when done up in today's fabrics:
